I received product and compensation from Sam’s Club as part of a sponsored collaboration. As always, all opinions are entirely my own.
As an event planner and mother of two, I’ve seen my fair share of baby shower gifts. In my experience, the best baby shower gifts are useful, thoughtful and practical.
While I always try to stick to a gift registry, there isn’t always one readily available. I’m also experienced enough to know that many people do not stick to the registry — resulting in multiples of the same items.
Many times, the issue is simply that guests forget to scan the gift registry code at checkout, resulting in the parents-to-be receiving doubles of the same product. I promise, parents-to-be don’t need 5 baby bathtubs! That’s why I find it essential to gift items that can be doubled up, while still remaining useful and not excessive.
One thing stands true in the world of baby showers and when stocking up on baby nursery essentials — there are a handful of items that parents and caregivers can never have “too many” of. I don’t think I have ever heard a mom say “I have way too many diapers”!
In my opinion, there are 5 items that every parent needs and can always use more of! These items are diapers, baby wipes, baby wash and shampoo, laundry detergent and infant formula.
Cue the Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club. The Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club is the perfectly “curated” collection of essentials for new parents-to-be. It makes the perfect baby shower gift because it is filled with items every parent needs and can use right away!
The Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club includes these five items and when purchased together, members save $25.00 vs. buying the items separately. Also, the items come in those GIANT, “probably won’t fit in my Prius” sizes which I love gifting! (Available online only. Limit 2 per member.)
The Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club includes:
Choice of one size of Huggies Little Snugglers or Huggies Little Movers
Huggies Little Snugglers and Little Movers Diapers offer the absolute BEST protection to help keep your baby’s skin clean and healthy. Huggies is the fastest growing brand in U.S. hospitals, based on verified shipments to U.S. hospitals for the 52 weeks ending on September 30, 2017. I may not be a mathematician, but that sure sounds like a whole lot of precious newborn bums staying clean and healthy!
Choice of one Huggies Baby Wipe — Huggies Natural Care, Fragrance Free or Huggies One & Done
My personal favorites are the Huggies One & Done Wipes. I’ve used these on both of my daughters from the start! Their thicker, TripleClean layers offer an ultimate clean. As stated on all Huggies One & Done Wipes boxes — Cleans Mess with Less! They are also alcohol free and paraben free and come 1,104 wipes to a box.
While I love how well they clean and how they don’t irritate my little one, my favorite feature of the Huggies One & Done Wipes is the Cucumber and Green Tea scent. Trust me, it is one of the best scents in the world, and always reminds me of my babies!
Choice of one Similac® Pro Infant Formula — Similac Pro-Advance™ or Similac Pro-Sensitive™
I don’t have much experience with baby formula, as both of my girls were exclusively breastfed. But even though I am not a formula-feeding mom, I do appreciate knowing that if my daughters would have ever needed anything other than breast-milk, there are wonderful options of baby formula on the market. I know many mothers who formula-feed exclusively, and have healthy, strong babies —just like mine!
The Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club comes with your choice of Similac Pro-Advance™ or Similac Pro-Sensitive™. Both of these formulas offer immune support and are designed to support brain, eye and physical development.
Similac® offers the first infant formula with 2’-FL Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs)* for immune support. Their infant formulas also come packed with OptiGRO, which in layman’s terms means it contains a unique blend of DHA, lutein and Vitamin E.
AVEENO® Baby Wash & Shampoo (2 pack of 18 oz.)
I love AVEENO® products. My family has used AVEENO products ever since I was a child myself! I vividly remember soaking in AVEENO oat baths whenever I had any kind of skin ailment or rash. It always came highly recommended by my pediatrician, and is still recommended by my daughter’s pediatrician. It is a brand I trust and love!
AVEENO® Baby Daily Care products are formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS Oats which are blended with rich, moisturizing ingredients to help protect your baby’s delicate skin for up to 24 hours! AVEENO products are gentle enough to use every day — even on tiny newborn babies!
Disney Baby ECOS™ Laundry Detergent in Free & Clear (170 fl. oz for up to 170 loads)
The Disney Baby ECOS™ Laundry Detergent is plant-powered and has received the EPA’s ‘Safer Choice’ certification! Its Free & Clear formula is hypoallergenic and is equipped with a built-in softener action. It’s also safe for my HE laundry machine, making it the “practically perfect” choice for my family!
